Brandix-led start-up seed accelerator Disrupt Unlimited has inked a strategic tie up with Regus, the world’s largest provider of flexible workspace solutions, to offer workspace solutions to start-ups incubated by Disrupt.

“Regus will provide flexible office space solutions for start-up companies that are born out of the efforts of Disrupt Unlimited,” a Brandix press release informed.

Disrupt Unlimited has been set up to inspire and support the search for innovations that transform the way textiles and apparels are manufactured.

The agreement envisages that Regus will provide fully-equipped office spaces, offer on-demand meeting room facilities, day office facilities and other services at special rates at various Regus Centres in Sri Lanka.

“Intelligent and collaborative work spaces are an integral component of the innovation eco-system,” said Udena Wickremesooriya, director at Disrupt Unlimited.

“We are therefore delighted that a workspace solutions provider of the calibre of Regus has come forward to partner our search for potentially game-changing technological innovations,” he added.

He said Disrupt Unlimited constantly strives to partner with domain experts with the intention of strengthening and developing the eco-system for invention and innovation in Sri Lanka.

Nirmal De Silva, Regus country head for Sri Lanka said, “Regus is honoured to join hands with Disrupt Unlimited in its pursuit of driving innovation across the clothing industry in Sri Lanka.”

“We feel that this strategic tie-up would support in creating the much needed ‘eco-system’ for disruptive innovation to take place in the industry,” Silva noted.

As the world’s largest provider of flexible workspace solutions with a network of 3,000 centres in 106 countries, Regus offers solutions for start-ups, SMEs and MNC’s.

“We are confident that by working very closely with Disrupt Unlimited, we could definitely assist in revolutionising the clothing industry in the country as well,” Silva observed

Launched in early 2014, Disrupt Unlimited runs an incubator and seed accelerator that seek to inspire, mentor and fund start-ups with breakthrough and technology-driven solutions.

The attempt is to disrupt products, practices, processes and business models in the apparel, textile and accessories sectors.

The objective of the company is to encourage innovators from across industries to develop solutions that address challenges at every stage of the supply chains.

Here too, the attempt is to lead in revolutionary changes in the way apparels, textiles and accessories are made, packaged, distributed and consumed. (AR)
